Based in Berlin, the Danish artist is a witty heir to the conceptual art and Minimalism of the 1970s.
His participatory dimension is at the heart of his work, just as his interest in the five senses and the four elements can be found in his installations. Among the most populars: the water pavilions Appearing Rooms, the mirror labyrinths, the Modified Social Benches, and the global project Breathe with Me, that invites audiences to paint their own individual ‘breath’ and visualize the resultant relation between all living being.
He made his name with art pieces whose apparent simplicity changes the viewer’s relationship to their surrounding and encourages dialogue.
A great practitioner of yoga and meditation, Jeppe Hein integrates these teachings into his artistic approach. He also loves nature, which he considers a refuge to recharge his batteries.
